Rat is an Enemy in Demon's Souls and Demon's Souls Remake. Enemies have their own behavior and unique attacks, killing enemies provide various drops that reward players with items and souls.


Grotesque vermin inhabiting the Valley of Defilement. Presumably, they are infected with the plague, as their bodies are festooned with open sores and wounds.

They are encountered only once in the Valley, infesting the area below the Filthy Woman merchant, but carcasses of the same creatures can be found in other archstones and through the valley itself.


Combat Information

  • Attack in a biting horde with a high chance of giving Plague



  • These rats are found once in a small pack of 9 of them. They are in the room just below the woman vendor, and clumped together which may make them hard to hit. Their worst trait is that they carry Plague!. The best way is to kill them from a distance. Do remember that there should be one or two hiding behind the ramp away from the others, look for them quickly. If you don't have the Evacuate miracle, you may want to farm them for their Shard of Archstone drops.

  • Throw a Firebomb and you can kill several of them at once. Regular Bolts or Arrows work well too. A large weapon with an Area of Effect attack will wipe most of them out in one blow. They are easily killed with the Miracle God's Wrath, but you should not use it if the Filthy Woman merchant is still upstairs, since it will hit her as well. Spell users can blast them with Soul Arrow or Fireball at their leisure. Firestormis a good alternative to God's Wrath, that provides a large area attack that won't hit the merchant upstairs.


Item Drop
